Catasteum Orchid Care Guide

Catasetums require plenty of water during their growth phase and need complete winter rest. During winter dormancy, keep them dry and start watering when a new growth comes up.

  Light

Catasetums Orchids thrives in bright indirect light. Learn more about light here 

 Watering

Catasetums require plenty of water during their growth phase.  This starts in spring when new growths appear with the onset of the pre-monsoon showers.  Watering should be gradually increased and they should be mature by the end of the monsoon.  Once the pseudobulbs are mature, watering should be reduced in autumn and tapered down until they start dropping their leaves which is an indication that water should be withheld completely except occasionally to prevent shrinking of their pseudobulbs.  It is at this time that they will come into bloom.

Fertilizing

Weekly once with Bio-20 or Basfoliar 19:19:19 for growth and rooting. Once a month with Basfoliar 13-40-13. Learn more about fertilizing here

These hybrids produce multiple flowers, vigorous growing plants and the possibility of flowering three to four times a year. The flower life is longer than that of pure Catasetums, up to 6 weeks.

Reduce or stop watering and fertilizer once the flowers have finished, then resume a normal watering schedule when new growth emerges. 

The leaves can turn yellow in transit.
